In this special episode of If Only They’d Told Me, Matthew Cutler-Welsh takes the microphone and shares a conversation with the founder of Engaged Marriage, Dustin Riechmann. 

Dustin and his wife have a great relationship, they’ve designed their lifestyle and have enough income to support that lifestyle. Dustin still works full time at a job he enjoys, but has another couple of businesses on the side. He also just ran his first marathon. 

Oh, and they have three kids!

But five years ago, things weren’t all that rosy. They were $50,000 in debt. Dustin was overweight. Their relationship was ‘okay’, but they’d kind of ‘settled’ into a pattern. They made a conscious decision to change.

Listen in to hear how they intentionally improved their finances, fitness, romance and sex life, and how they can now help others to do the same.

Fran Ninow and Jude Mitchell are two inspirational ladies. 10 years ago, with teenage children and one divorce between them, they borrowed money from a friend and started up a small magazine, called Verve. It started from hard work and perseverance..they literally cold-called until they found advertisers.

Today, Verve is one of the most glossy and highly regarded local magazines here in New Zealand.

Here, Jacqui chats to them both about hard work, perseverance and how, even with children and divorce, women out there can aspire to and achieve anything they want...
